Have you checked out Heidi Swapp's blog lately? She has the cutest island centerpiece right now! I love how colorful and festive it is, just in time for the summer! Love it :-)

Fifth Avenue Collection

My mom started her business selling Fifth Avenue Collection jewelry about a month ago. If you have never heard of it, check out her website! The jewelry is beautiful, and the prices are great. I am holding a show on Saturday, the 2nd, for anyone who is interested! Happy Friday!

A weekend away...

Mark, Evan, and I are headed home for the weekend. Mark is going to be doing some handy work around my parent's house, and Evan and I are going to relax!

I did a mini photo shoot at our house yesterday... some of my favorite shots:

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Off to Spokane...

Evan and I are going to drive up to Spokane this morning to visit my has been way too long since our last visit. She adores spending time with him, and it will be nice to get out of Pullman for a bit! Mark is also working 4, 10 hour shifts this week so we can visit my parent's over Memorial Day weekend... so he isn't going to get home until after 7 tonight. I am hoping to work on my art journal card tonight when I get home!

Have a great Monday!

Too busy to think... :-)

I having been running 100 miles an hour all day! I have wanted to make my art journal card... haven't had time. I have wanted to read my new Creating Keepsakes magazine all day... no time. I wanted to sit and do absolutely nothing, for at least five minutes... no, I haven't been able to do that either! I have been working on design team projects, coordinating family vacations, having guests over, and cooking dinner. Evan was in fine form this evening, way too much crankiness for my taste! Needless to say.... no art journal card. Or layouts w/ my new Jenni Bowlin kit... sigh. I guess that is the way life goes sometimes... sometimes it is just too busy for fun. Maybe tomorrow... :-)

Art Journal (week 18)

This week's prompt: Nature.

I loved how Bethany used a quote for her card... so I borrowed the idea. Thanks Bethany! I decided to use this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson because patience is something I have to deal with on a daily basis. Through my son, Evan, I have had to learn patience... something I am not always good at.

I love the blues, greens, and browns together... one of my favorite color combinations! I look forward to next week's card :-)

I didn't drop off the planet... I swear!

I really am here! I got home from Puyallup last night... and have spent the day working on my house... getting unpacked, putting clean clothes away, and readjusting Evan to his normal routine. I think he really missed Grandma and Grandpa today! At one point, he was standing in my kitchen, yelling at the top of his lungs. I think he was waiting for my dad to come out and scoop him up! I guess this is all part of raising a one-year-old... :-) Well, I am off to bed. Have a fantastic Tuesday!
